to change the president's legacy? >>> john king, don peebles, member of president obama's national finance committee. john, let me start with you. president obama's poll numbers hiing new lows, just over three years -- three years from the end of his run. can he reverse this? >> can he reverse it, christine? >> absolutely. >> can you see a clear path for him to reverse it? no. for a number reasons. you mentioned his personal approval rating is at the lowest point of his presidency. also people are in a lousy mood about washington. some of it's the government shutdown, some of it's the rollout of obama care. the president would need partners to reverse it, to get things done. paul ryan who he's negotiating with, a disciple of jack kemp, he would like to work on some of these economic proposals. a lot of these tea party members come from districts that are struggling. they're behind in the recovery, if you will. so they have common interests, but christine, what they don't have is any common ground. so it's very hard to see any major new economic 234ish tifs in the short term. the president
have a great weekend. "the willis report" is up next. ♪ be with us. eight to 10:00 p.m. john: it is hard to drive, spews pollution. that is what we get with obamacare. >> the site is not working 08 is supposed to. >> the obama administration is conceding that some people will have to pay more double-digit increases. john: this halloween politicians give us something we should be scared of, obamacare. >> that product is working. it is really good. john: that is our show tonight. ♪ >> and now john stossel. ♪ john: happy halloween. what scares you? that thing scares me as much as big government and central planning. this is obamacare. this kind of micromanagement takes our money and limits our freedom. government cannot even count votes accurately. now they're going to manage o health care? of few weeks ago the president address the failure of this website and made one point that is absolutely true. >> the affordable care act is not just a website. it is much john: right. this is so much more. the failure of the on-line exchanges, just a symptom of this disease. government m
was this past week? >> i would say this is as bad as it's been for president obama. coming off the heels having stared down john boehner the government shutdown and debt limit issue, i think he got a coldish with the nsa wiretapping and more serious for him at home, the obamacare fiascoes. i think he's in for rocky waters ahead. >> we saw the president doing well compared to how badly the republicans were doing in the polls and in the public perception, is it timing or just a bad week generally? >> i think there are a lot of issues as jay said that are going to be resolved over the next few months that will determine what happens in the next few terms. you have obamacare, the turmoil in the middle east. you have general manager and the relations between the republican and democratic party. these things coming together or not coming together will determine his success over the next three years. >> are you taking this as a sign of things to come. >> i think it was a single week. it was not a great week. but keep in mind as tough as it was for the president the republicans are in historically bad
and this is the way to go. and guess what president obama accommodated republican positions to try and get a deal. no republican support it. republican complaints, fascism. >> michelle and then john and then we've got to go. >> what obama care is doing right now is undermining and really tearing apart private insurance companies. >> oh, yeah, and then doing such a great job, michelle. they were bankrupting american corporation. american corporations complain about the high cost of health care under those pry vatd insurance companies. >> go ahead, michelle. >> look, what they're doing is they're choking them, like kim said. they're doing it through red tape, through regulations. that's not what we need right now. we need -- what's going to happen is we're going to see employers drop tons of people into the exchanges and then we're just going to see what we're seeing in europe. >> oh, yes. is that what you say about social security, medicare, you don't like any of it. >> that's another topic. we'll do that next week. we've got to go right now. john, first topic next block. >>> coming up, after year
, john, that's what this is. before this week, the problem for obama, this was a met metaphor, this is more serious. it goes directly to the credibility of the president of the united states and his integrity. deceive the american people as to what was the truth they were going to keep their plans and not only hundreds and thousands, but millions are losing their plans and being forced to buy new plans. this hurts the president deeply and personally in a place he's never been hurt before. >> eleanor. >> the administration is on the defensive clearly and the crickets want it to be about the president's credibility that he is lying, that he knew all along. but there are some facts you have to engage with here. when the president made those statements, they grandfathered in all of the existing insurance policies before the affordable care act passed. the government cannot be responsible for the decisions of private insurance companies. and the people who are getting their plans canceled are 5% of the market who operate on the individual policies. most of those people are going
about obama care, we'll bring in john from the national review. john, the site is going down in 90 minutes and so what does this tell you about this. saturday night that they are going to tackle this. >> it is a good time it take it down. and today is the one month anniversary of the site and we are no closer to getting people on line than a month ago. >> we saw republicans pressing for the raw numbers on how many people sewned up and truly ciped up. why is that important foritous know? >> because there is a lost spin and smoke in the air and fog. enrollment numbers are hard bit of data that we can see and decide is this site working? we know after the first day there was a six enrollees. one way to get through all of the baffle gabs in the administration and other people putting out. what is the raw numbers? if they are going up. what will you get compared to the goals. >> what about the argument of the website is not working and those numbers don't matter? >> they say it is getting better and better every day. is it really? >> how are they measuring it? >> exactly. >> before we m

care. frankly, obama care with preventative care will help that. >> i have to get john in here. do you think government should have a role in our refrigerators, which is basically what we're talking about? >> good lord, no. government is not educating anything. look at our education system. we keep going down in the rankings. as the only person on this panel that weighing over 250 pounds, if you send me a letter for eating a chocolate bunny on easter, we're going to have a fight. we have lazy kids in this country. they need a boot on their hind quarters to get them out and play in the yard. they don't need notes on halloween. that's ridiculous. >> this lady as far as i'm concerned should be addressed as a bully because that's what she was. >>> thanks, guys. and thanks to bernard whitman for joining us. >> thank you for having me. >>> they may be dead, but that's not stopping them from making a killing off of your money. find out how. >>> and the one sock that has jonas' dog wagging its tail. how can you not stick around for ramon? better for yourself. and better is so easy with benefib
that they're worth going back to for a minute. president obama hit his lowest job approval ever in that particular poll. 42%. john boehner speaker of the house 17% positive. not so good. republican party, another record low. 22% positive. democrats a little better. 37%. isn't all that good most of the time. congress, three quarters of the american people think congress is the -- part of the problem, not part of the solution. and finally, only 29% say they want to re-elect their own congressmen. about two thirds say throw the bum out. and they're talking about their own congressman. what's going on here? we finally found something that everybody in america agrees on. and that is this thing isn't working across the board. gwen: and sitting at this table a couple of weeks ago the president is riding high. the republicans have embarrassed themselves. and now that didn't last. >> that was just two weeks ago. the lesson here is that when there's a government shutdown and there's a mess, it does drag everybody down. and then you got to go back to the fundamentals. is the economy workin
for tom foley. you will go from president obama, former president bill clinton, house speaker john boehner, and nancy pelosi. watch the service on c-span. originallynting was painted as my grandmother's official white house portrait. in the 1960 six, lady bird johnson with looking for portraits of first ladies to rehang in the white house. she thought that was important. she looked high and low it cannot find my grandmother's official portrait. she called and said do you know where that painting is? my grandmother suggests, it is on my wall. ms. johnson said, you shouldn't have that. it belongs the white house. my grandmother said no. that is my painting. it is on my wall. that is where it is going to stay. eventually she gave up. see it saturday on c-span on 7:00 eastern. we continue our series as we look at maybe eisenhower. >> defense secretary chuck hagel spoke thursday at the anti- defamation league centennial meeting in new york city. he talked about the benefits to same-sex couples in the national guard and has remarks for -- were followed by leon panetta, and then secretary panetta
and ask president obama and the democratic majority leader to stop their court-packing effort. >> ron, john cornyn is an example of the tail wagging the dog. normal circumstances he would be a normal conservative. not a bad guy. normal person trying to do his job in washington leading his party to as many victories as they can get. all well and good. yet he begins to act more like that character sitting with him down there from texas. he begins to imitate like they all do. they all start talking like mike lee and rand paul because they're scared to death one of these will look over and see them and won't have averted their glance. they're afraid of getting any attention, these people. reasonable right winger conservatives, any kind of conservative unless they're out and out tea party types. it's gotten to be the craziest leading everybody else. because fear of being tagged you're not one of us. >> you're right. guys like cornyn get led around by the nose by the worst elements in their party. david had mentioned tip and the gipper before. i got home from a trip overseas to find that bo
. the result? here's senator patrick leahy on thursday. >> president obama is being treated differently than president bush was, patricia millett is being treated different than john roberts was. it is not fair. it's not extraordinary circumstance. there's no justification for it. >> forget the 2005 deal. forget extraordinary circumstances. better luck next time. you're an obama nominee. in fact, so far in this administration, 32 of his nominees have needed cloiture petitions to end filibusters over nominations. that number in the entire bush presidency just 18. there's that old saying justice delayed is justice denied and couldn't be more true right now in the judicial system. might be a political game to republicans in washington but access to the courts matters to americans of all political persuasions across the country and we saw that firsthand this week. joining is professor spencer overton and drew courtney. thanks to you both. >> thanks for having me. >> thank you. >> spencer, i want to start with you and talking about the decisions this week and the vacancies. i know that you've wor

john boehner, drew one more line in the sand. >> obama care is bad for america. we're going to do everything we can to make sure that it never happens. >> and yet the darn thing survived, despite the administration's own very serious mistakes. as rovner reported, obama's people naively figured republican states couldn't resist all that cash coming down from the federal government and would decide to create their own insurance exchanges and expand their medicaid programs. not so. republicans, it seems, have their principles, and health care for poor people is not one of them. ideology trumped money. republicans aside, obama care had its own built-in problem, born of original sin. and some of us have to resist the temptation to say, "we told you so"! four years ago we said the public option in health care, a kind of medicare for all, would be easier to launch and simpler to operate than the rube goldberg contraption that came to be known as obama care. rube goldberg, for those of you under a certain age, was the fellow who designed machines that made simple tasks much more complicat
